Night WLL BRING UNIT UNDER CONTROL OF CITY COUNCIL j Chief Will be Made Into Appointive Job by May or; Put Teeth In Baa on Oars Near Blaze Action In Algona's long contemplated reorganization of the flre department will be initiated this weeh when the council meets Thursday evening. A new ordinance replacing the present one will be presented for the council's consideration by City Attorney J. L,. Bonar. A second ordinance providing for inspection of property for flre hazards will be presented at the same time. A new ordinance, in its present form, would make a number of Important changes and revisions In the present set up. One of the most important is that section 1 of the proposed ordinance provides that "The flre department shall be under the control and supervision of the council." Privately Organized ! At present the fire department la actually almost independent of city control. It is a privately organized group which elects its own members, makes its own laws and governs itself. The only degree of city control is through the use of city apparatus and the fact that the firemen are paid by the city. According to section two the chief would be appointed by the mayor of Algona at the first regular meeting of the council In April of each year or in event of a vacancy, with the approval of the council. UmltDcpttoZO There shall be no more than 20 members of the flre department at any time. Any male citizen over 21 years of age who works within '•the corporate limits of Algona is eligible to become a member. The volunteer flre department would become the new city department and .future vacancies would be filled by •election by the members, subject •to approval of the council. Provision for control of traffic at the time of a flre la worthy of attention. While under the present traffic ordinances provision is made for handling of traffic at the time of a flre actually some times a flre has been the occasion for a virtual parade, with private cars dashing along with the fire trucks to the scene of the blaze. The new ordinance would provide that at the time of a fire all cars in the path of the fire engine must pull over to the curb and remain stationary until the engine has passed, and pedestrians must remain on the sidewalks leaving the intersections clear . None but official vehicles may follow the fire trucks closer than 500 feet and except for official vehicles no cars may park within the block in which a fire has broken out. , father, Mother and New Baby Doing Well at Bartletts Portland: A 7 pound boy arrived at the Lloyd Bartlett home early •Saturday morning.
